A total of 3,193 were arrested in connection with human trafficking cases between the month of January 2015 to May 2023, said the Immigration deputy director-general (operations) Jafri Embok Taha.


He said in a interview that 2,110 cases were reported and investigated during the period, and some were convicted under the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act-2007.


“Human trafficking cases in this country affect both Malaysians and foreigners, regardless of gender or age. And combating this was not only a task for law enforcement agencies as it requires support and cooperation from the community and also from the victims”, Jafri added while appearing as a guest on Bernama Radio interview.


The Deputy Director-General of Immigration Malaysia said, “There are situations where victims refuse to file a complaint. This may be due to fear or trauma, which makes it difficult for the authorities to take action.”
